Yes, fluorescent technology is the lighting that is known for hurting your eyes and washing out your complexion. Well, that’s at least all I knew about it before taking a job at a lighting company. But there's a lot more to fluorescent lighting than just the not-so-ideal side effects, including some nice benefits.
Simply put, fluorescent lighting is a kind of lighting technology which depends on a chemical reaction inside of a glass tube to create light. This chemical reaction involves gases and mercury vapor interacting, which produces an invisible UV light.
The best place to turn it off is at your circuit breaker box. Turn on the light that is screwed into the fixture. Once you turn the breaker switch, the light should turn off. Of course, the best and safest way to be sure the power to the fixture is off is to use a voltage tester. Rule 2: Measure the Height of the Globe from the Ceiling.
High-intensity discharge lamps are a type of arc lamp. Brand new high-intensity discharge lamps make more visible light per unit of electric power consumed than fluorescent and incandescent lamps, since a greater proportion of their radiation is visible light in contrast to infrared.
Neon lighting consists of brightly glowing, electrified glass tubes or bulbs that contain rarefied neon or other gases. Neon lights are a type of cold cathode gas-discharge light. A neon tube is a sealed glass tube with a metal electrode at each end, filled with one of a number of gases at low pressure.
Pendants that are inverted (they look like upside down table lamps) streams light up to the ceiling, providing ambient or mood lighting in a space. On the contrary, pendants with open bottoms often focus light downward, making them perfect as task lighting above a workspace like the kitchen island.
Recessed light fixtures are flush with the ceiling, making them great for rooms with low ceilings. Sometimes called can lights or downlights, these fixtures have three main components that can define the type of recessed light — housing, trim style and bulb or lamp type.
